  • Published Date: June 1, 2018

GCC Natural Gas Market size will surpass USD 50 Billion by 2024, as reported in the latest study by Global Market Insights Inc.

Rising concern to maintain fossil fuel sustainability along with stringent regulations to reduce environmental impact will drive the GCC natural gas market size. For instance, in November 2016 Saudi Arabia signed Intended Nationally Determined Contribution and Paris agreement which aims to reduce 130 Mt of CO2 annually by 2030.

Increasing need to suffice demand for electricity from high energy intensive industries will propel the GCC natural gas market size. Ability to offer cost effectiveness, environmental proximity and low electricity generation cost will make its adoption preferable over other alternates. For instance, as per BP energy outlook, total energy utilization in GCC region is anticipated to witness growth over 50% by 2040, where natural gas is projected to gain over 60% escalation.

Qatar natural gas market is projected to reach over 50 million tons by 2024. Positive outlook toward liquified natural gas production along with abundant availability of natural gas reserves will enhance the product penetration. For instance, in 2018 government of Qatar announced plans to boost LNG production up by 30% i.e. from 77 MTPA to 100 MTPA by 2023.

Unconventional natural gas market is anticipated to witness growth over 9% by 2024. Growing demand for clean fuel from power plant and water desalination industry will stimulate the industry landscape. Ability to offer greater efficiency, less carbon emissions and non-toxins are some of the features which will enhance the product penetration across the region.
